Norton Healthcare's PGY2 residency programs build on Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) education and PGY1 pharmacy residency programs to contribute to the development of clinical pharmacists in advanced or specialized practice. The PGY2 oncology pharmacy residency provides residents with opportunities to function independently as practitioners by conceptualizing and integrating accumulated experience and knowledge and incorporating both into the provision of patient care that improves medication therapy. Residents who successfully complete the PGY2 oncology pharmacy residency program possess competencies that qualify them for clinical pharmacist and/or faculty positions and position them to be eligible for attainment of board certification in the oncology practice area.
The PGY2 oncology pharmacy residency program is integrated within the five ambulatory clinics of the Norton Cancer Institute as well as the inpatient oncology units of the four adult hospitals and the Norton Children's Hospital. The program offers direct patient care learning experiences focusing on malignant hematology, breast cancer, gynecologic malignancies, sarcomas, gastrointestinal cancers, geriatric oncology, genitourinary cancers, lung cancers, CNS malignancies, melanoma, pediatric cancers, and bone marrow transplantation / engineered cellular therapies. Program preceptors are Board Certified Oncology Pharmacy Specialists with a particular area of focus.
